What will these grannies do when murder’s not an option?

Every day, Peggy, Carole, and Madge get together to knit, drink tea, and exchange juicy titbits of gossip. Occasionally, they indulge in a bit of murder … but only when strictly necessary.

When a tumble down the stairs lands one of their friends in hospital, Peggy, Carole, and Madge don’t believe it was an accident. They come together to protect her. But this case isn’t as straightforward as they’d hoped. For starters, this time, murder’s off the table – but not for the reasons they’re all too used to hearing. 

Without resorting to lethal methods, will Peggy, Carole, and Madge find a way to help their friend?

Friends in Need is a short story in the forthcoming Vigilauntie Justice series – cosy(ish) noir(ish) stories set in London. The stories do have on-page violence but it's never graphic. There's minimal swearing and no romance or sex – but there's heaps of queer content and found family.

A great short story

I've read some of the Starship Teapot series, and downloaded this to try a different genre and series.

I'm very pleased that I did. The characters are interesting and the story is fun. Recommended.

Loved it!

This cosy crime story has it all - friendship, solidarity, humour and heart aplenty, even an adorable rescue dog. A comforting read in these turbulent times. Looking forward to the novel!

Well written story

The story had well rounded characters and a fulfilling plot in which justice is satisfyingly served through vigilante action.

Fun off the beaten path

The series title says it all — these are vigilaunties! So if you're looking for well-crafted, mature characters who are a little.... how should I put this? morally grey.... then this is the series for you!

A Exciting Read

Robin and Jenn are gathered with Jenns sorority sisters. Jen introduces Deb Snyder as her fiancee. Then Jenn is poisoned by one of these friends. A very enjoyable read while trying to guess who the real killer was.
